Finding a car that delivers both dependability and glamour is a rare thing. Usually, these two qualities are mutually exclusive. Usually, dependable cars are too dull to be truly desirable. Yet, over the decades, Mercedes has built a reputation for doing exactly that. They produce vehicles that combine fastidious German engineering with chic looks and exciting performance.
The Mercedes range showcases dependability and glamour across a wide variety of models. Adding a blend of advanced technology, precision engineering and elegant styling. So, you probably don’t want to cut corners when it comes to protecting your investment. GAP Insurance is available as an extra level of protection.
Why do I need Mercedes GAP Insurance?
No one wants to contemplate the worst-case scenario but it’s wise to consider the limits of your existing insurance policy in the event of a write-off. After all, nearly half a million cars are written off in the UK every year. In these circumstances, many motorists find that their standard insurance pays out less than they need to replace their car. The reason for this is depreciation.
How does GAP Insurance work?
GAP Insurance covers the difference between the amount a standard insurance policy pays and the amount you’d need to buy a like-for-like replacement. In other words, it's a great way to ensure you’re fully covered in the event of a write-off. You can learn more in our GAP Insurance guide.

Most standard policies pay out the current value of a car in the event of a write-off or theft. This is typically a long way short of the figure you’d need to buy a new like-for-like replacement.
In fact, depreciation typically knocks about 60% off a car’s value over three years. If you were to buy a new Mercedes E-Class for £50,000, it may be worth £20,000 three years later. Consequently, your insurer may only offer a £20,000 pay-out in the event of a write-off. You’d have to find another £30,000 to replace your car with the same model.
